Short Bio: Achim Schweikard studied Mathematics at Hamburg University and University of Paris XI. He obtained his PhD from Technical University of Berlin in 1989. After that he worked as a research associate at the department of computer science at Stanford university, within a joint appointment between Stanford's departments of neurosurgery and computer science. In 1994 he joined Technical University of Munich (TU Munich) as an Associate Professor. In 2002 he joined Luebeck University as a Full Professor. He is the inventor of numerous technologies in medical robotics. His invention of correlation-based tracking for cancer radiosurgery has started to become the standard of care in cancer radiosurgery. A very large number of cancer patients worldwide has now been treated with this new highly accurate method. His research areas of interest include medical robotics and artificial intelligence methods.
